‘A program on the rise,’ is how junior midfielder Desiree Kleberg described her Lady Wildcats Lacrosse team. “Being a young team, we knew we had to push harder in practice and especially in games,” said our April Athlete of the Month who is a Minds in Motion Athlete and in her 3rd season on the Varsity squad. “We’ve worked hard this season and notched a few wins.” The Wildcats have a new Assistant Coach in Emily Murray and the chemistry is good. “She’s really motivated us and it’s showing up in our games,” said Desiree who ended her season with 40 goals and 10 assists. “We’ve been in every game and go out there feeling we can win.”  Desiree also plays Volleyball and Basketball, and this spring was the Wildcats MVP and All-County Honorable Mention.

Another midfielder, Dominic Esposito, is our Male Athlete of the Month for April, and Varsity player for his 3rd year. “Overall it was a pretty good year,” said Dominic, who closed his season with 37 goals and 17 assists for the Men’s Lacrosse team.  “We lost a couple we should have won and won a couple we were expected to lose, so the season was up and down.” One of the trademarks of a good lacrosse team is that the players are close, they like to have fun, but when that whistle blows, they get down to business. The Wildcats are just such a team and Dominic looks forward to next year when they go-at-it-again in one of the country’s toughest high school lacrosse divisions.  Dominic also plays volleyball and was voted All-Division and All-County Honorable Mention this past spring.
